Details Concerning Jobs with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISM or equivalent security certification; and advanced network design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high availability, business continuity, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees who can join Progent's staff of helpdesk service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, We are looking for experienced managers who can perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering attentive customer services, and offering a strong value-based fee structure, We have managed to increase our customer list rapidly while delivering consulting services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will expand your knowledge via cooperation with our group of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering network expertise and technical help to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who have recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent will market your talents, but you need to provide standard credentials for us to market. If you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, using specialized application utilities to deliver the highest quality of support, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The main factor that distinguishes us from other network support companies is the high quality of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise covering a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other key technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the collective experience of our team of experts.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. We will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site client work is based on your schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's consulting services can be performed off-site, offering 100% efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Our operations are set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to customer needs through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate team projects and enable problem escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is situated throughout California, but we are building a rapidly expanding team of network experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional business models. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and administration teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are enabling us to target and land the scores of new clients we are currently engaging each month. We lately marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong people skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of people, then we are probably not a good match.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the future of network consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Professional Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a carefully designed and implemented network can be a crucial piece for accelerating any firm's growth, and we apply this belief in our own system infrastructure.
